On Monday, Dutch judges sentenced an Afghan man to 26 years and eight months in prison for stabbing two American tourists at Amsterdam Central Station in a terror attack.
The 20-year-old, identified only as Jawed S., was also ordered to pay nearly £ 2.6 million in damages to the Amsterdam District Court after the August 31, 2018 attack.
One of the two victims remains in a wheelchair after the attack, causing the commuters to panic at the busiest station in the city. The police shot Jawed S. into the lower body before arresting him.

A Dutch court today sentenced Jawed S. (pictured to the right of the picture on the floor) to nearly 27 years in prison for stabbing two American tourists who left one of them wheelchair-bound. The police stopped the attack by shooting the man in the lower body
& # 39; He never regretted or regretted the trial and repeatedly said he would do the same if his religion were offended & said the judges.
& # 39; The risk of a repeat offense is therefore very high and the court finds it essential that society is protected against it for as long as possible. & # 39;
During his trial in a heavily fortified courtroom, Jawed S. said that he had traveled from Germany to the Netherlands to protect & # 39; the prophet Mohammed & # 39 ;.
He also mentioned anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders, and his knife attack came the day after the far-right MP announced that he was canceling movements to organize a cartoon contest to caricize the Prophet Mohammed.

Dutch prosecutors charged Jawed S. with two counts of attempted murder with a terrorist target, and judges found all charges against him proven.
& # 39; He (Jawed S.) came to the Netherlands to kill as many people as possible & # 39 ;, the judges said.
The wheelchair-bound victim has a serious spinal cord injury, while the second American man was stabbed in the right chest and arm.
& # 39; Despite the fact that the threat was short-lived, it had a devastating effect on the two Americans and their spouses, & # 39; said the judges.
The wife of one victim also had a miscarriage two months after the attack.
& # 39; The question of whether she will ever have children remains, & # 39; said the judges.
